Car Washing Day
By: Rick Boxx
September 17, 2014

When I was a young banker, I thought if I served my bosses well, some day I could demand others to serve me. Then, I began working for Gregg.

One day, Gregg, our bank president, announced that he was going to wash the cars of each staff member. I thought, Hes crazy! Shouldnt we be washing his car?

Looking back, that one humble act rallied many staff members to become committed in serving Gregg.

1 Peter 5:2 teaches, Be shepherds of Gods flock that is under your care, watching over themnot because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve.

Humbly and eagerly serving others creates loyalty. If you want people to serve you, try serving them first.
